    "This is how to write romantic suspense"

    Having first read Darkling I Listen when it was published in 2001, I was happily surprised to see it available in audio. I haven't read anything better in this genre since then and I rank Darkling as among the very, very best in romantic suspense. This is deeply moving story with all the right touches. Carlyle is a wonderful hero, tragically wounded and isolated while he barely holds himself together for the sake of his needful family. Allison barrels into his life and forces him to come out of him self-imposed isolation and face unpleasant and dangerous forces bearing down on him. Together they face a stalker whose threats are escalating, a hostile sheriff who is too busy protecting his own behind to be of any help, Carlyle's pretty scary agent and even scarier mother. Through it all they manage to find love and trust, and none of that comes easily. This is a complex and compelling book with fully fleshed out characters -- even the secondary characters are carefully drawn. Dark and very sad at times, the HEA is well worth the torturous journey.
    Katherine Stucliffe, where are you?

    "very enjoyable"

    plenty of suspense plus a really moving love story, poignant characters...I really loved it (one of the few books that audible lists as a romance that actually IS a romance!)

    "Wasted not one, but two credits!"

    This narrator was terrible. The story, predictable. I really tried to listen to it...really...I tried. I ultimately listened to the last chapter and that gave me the whole story. I'm so sad I wasted 2 credits.

    "Romance - not Suspense"

    The previous reviewer states that this is actually a romance like Audible claims but on my screen it's listed as Suspense. The Publisher’s summary is similarly misleading.

    I was terribly disappointed in this PURE ROMANCE story. Here's the story line, a reporter falls in love with a guy who is perhaps the best looking in the world, is rich beyond belief, cares so much for his family, is an incredible lover and is generally misunderstood by the adoring public. If you like long and repeated chapters of "how tight his buns are" then this story is for you. If you want a suspense story - look elsewhere.

    "Could have been better."

    I was dissapointed with this book. It started out really good, but it lost my interest at the half way point.

    "Darkling I Listen"

    I was torn between avid listening and annoyance with some of the characters in this book. Have to say I also fast forwarded to the last chapter and heard that way before the end because I wanted to know the outcome of the two main characters. I then went back and 'filled in the gaps'.

    All in all a good listen though. Not a great book, but a good one.
